Political Art: Barry Blitt’s “The Shining”

June Cover of the "New Yorker"

Cover Story
Barry Blitt’s “The Shining”

"The cover for the June 3, 2019, issue, by Barry Blitt, portrays three men who have been enormously helpful to President Trump: Lindsey Graham, William Barr, and Mitch McConnell. “Assembling an image with the President’s enablers presented a problem: Who to include, who to leave out?” Blitt said. “I barely had enough room for the President himself. In any case, I expect there will be other opportunities to draw Devin Nunes, Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Sean Hannity, etc., etc., etc.”

It’s a good cartoon. 

I’ve been looking at old posts lately and the threads include a lot of people no longer with us, including Dicky.
